"Dog loves books! Dog loves books about dinosaurs and Dog loves books about aliens- in fact Dog loves all books! Dog has his very own bookshop, although he doesn't have many customers. But that's all right, because when Dog is surrounded by books, he is never short of friends or fun. And when someone does come into the shop, Dog knows just which books to recommend..."
Meet Dog and let him show you why he LOVES BOOKS!
Winner of Roald Dahl Funny Prize: The Funniest Book for Children Aged Six and Under 2010. Shortlisted for Independent Booksellers' Book of the Year Award: Children's Book of the Year 2010.
"Yates conveys emotion superbly ... A fine tale for encouraging early readers" Daily Telegraph "What a wonderful passion to pass on to younger readers! ... This is a simple but heartfelt celebration of the power of imagination and the simple happiness that books can bring us all, young and old" -- Niamh Sharkey Irish Times "Dog Loves Books was deservedly short-listed for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. [This] story of a book-selling dog better at imagining than shifting his stock is a delight" -- Nicholas Tucker Independent "A wonderful book and an endearing story for any child or adult to read, particularly those who may think that books or them or they do not like reading. This would be an ideal story to use as a vehicle through which to engage and entice young children into reading" Early Years Educator "A story with a valuable message" Oxford Times
